Have an Ice Day

Lei ChicYour friends are still talking about your New Year's Eve soiree. But somehow bashes for your little one always get a frosty reception.

There was the clown that scared her right out of her big shoes (apparently one year olds are not fans of removable noses). Then that obnoxiously aggressive magician made all your guests disappear. And what you thought was going to be a "mini petting zoo" turned out to be two rabbits and a guinea pig.

Time to call Kona Ice, a bright, musical truck that brings an entire shave ice party right to your door. Every cup comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, condensed milk, and your choice of 30-plus flavored syrups.

Lei ChicKids will have a ball dressing up their own dessert at the truck's "FlavorWave" bar. Try fruity bursts of Watermelon and Orange, local favorites like Li Hing Mui and Lilikoi, or go completely wacky and pour on some Tiger's Blood (a blend of strawberry and coconut.) Sugar-free and 100% juice syrups are also available by request.

Word on the treat is that Kona Ice is also a great way to fundraise for schools, churches and sports teams.

So don't miss a sweet.

It's time to get the snow on the road.

Kona Ice runs for about $100 an hour and is available in urban Honolulu, Windward Oahu, West Oahu and Maui. Click here to learn more about Kona Ice.
